I live in the lovely village of Elham with my partner Pauline, and our two cats. Pauline works as a trainer and fund raiser for a contemporary dance company and a secular celebrant. I am virtually retired, though I now practice as a Life Coach and do a lot of voluntary work, mainly mentoring young people and working with children in a play setting. We have a large family living in the area and spend much of our time with them. We both try and keep active, walking in our beautiful surrounding countryside, riding our bikes, dancing and just chilling with friends. We both like music and art and visit galleries and theatres whenever possible. We both used to windsurf and I have a goal to get fit enough to get back on board! We have a lovely garden and an allotment and we both love to cook. We are involved in our busy village...not just drinking at the local!
